Ch 3 - Heat Effects

Here we present a discussion of the definition of internal energy and enthalpy for real substances, ideal gases, and incompressible liquids and solids.

In this lesson, you learn about two different heat capacities: constant volume heat capacity and constant pressure heat capacity. You also learn how to obtain heat capacity data from NIST WebBook.

In this lesson, we learn to use a hypothetical process path to determine the change in thermodynamic properties from an initial state to a final state.

In this lesson, you will learn that hypothetical process paths are a useful tool in taking into account the change of properties associated with phase changes.
